Chirodectes maculatus is a jellyfish species that’s seen super-rarely. And I really mean super-rarely: it has only been documented twice so far. So, when this incredible creature was captured on camera, it was quite exciting. A diver managed to film it off the coast of Papua New Guinea, and the video is as spectacular as the jellyfish itself.
It’s simply incredible how many amazing creatures there are underwater. We certainly can’t take a peek at this marvelous world every day, but underwater photographers can show it to us. Marine biologist and photographer Alexander Semenov has caught one such creature on camera. Sea angels live in large amounts in Arctic and Antarctic seas, and Alexander has captured their beauty in a series of amazing images.
